Temaril P and head tremors

    Hi, I have an 8 year old pit named Buddy. He's had skin/ allergy issues since I've had him, and it usually only strikes between June- August. His usual course of treatment is Temaril P. For the last 7 years (that I've had him) he's had no reactions to TP. This, time, however, I noticed slight head tremors. I took him to the vet and everything else, exam, bloodwork, behavior, etc, is normal. The vet decreased the dose and Buddy has about 3 doses left until he's officially tapered off them. I'm glad all testing was ok, but the slight tremor is still there. The vet said this could just be a new reaction to the Temaril P. Has anyone else's dog experienced this?? I'm just worried. Thanks.

    Have any of the ingredients in the drug changed?

    This thread was locked so no one could respond. I unlocked it.

    Looked like it was possibly a mistake.

    I was wondering why this was locked? Anyways, Temaril P did not agree with Tonka at all and she only had one prescription and was changed over to regular prednisone for her allergies. Now she is on Methyl-prednisolone, which I dont know how I feel about that.

    There is a shot out now that helps Tonka during peak allergy season. It is called cytopoint. It is not a steroid or an allergy shot. It takes the itch away. It can be given as frequently as every 4 weeks. It is expensive, about $115 for a 55lb. dog. However, it seems to agree with her pretty well and helps us get through the worst part of the year. Of course she still needs her weekly baths.

    Be very careful when giving drugs for allergy. My sister had a dog with a stomach rash she took to a vet who gave the dog a shot. The dog died before she got him home.

    I wonder if it was a high dose of steroids or antibiotics?

    Not sure what it was but it was for allergies.
